overseas and with hurricane katrina down in new orleans, and they say it does not look much different. walking around and having it be dead silent and hearing the hissing of natural gas coming out of the ground, we are still as of yesterday in search and rescue mode to be sure everyone is out of their house and safe before they allow people to come back. it is a very frustrating time. i can tell you what he was talking about on the earlier call, i had the opportunity last night to talk to some people in the shelters and they are amazed at the amount of people willing to help, total strangers. random citizens donating goods to try to help their fellow man. it is unfortunate it takes a tragic event like this to bring the best out of people. host: what is the best way the federal government can help your district? guest: first of all, the president has been doing everything he needed to do along with the governor in giving the governor of the tools that we need here in new jersey to get this process started. it is going to be a multi-year process to get us headed back in the right direct
in and that mindset of dissolving governme government, then when you have katrina and you have the storm we get the kind of response we got then and a lot of people suffering and basically on our own. that is the scary part. all back to the fact that it will get worse and worse over time and more and more heated that you have heard the thought that it is time to act and do something and you can't count on government to save you. i live in new york and they could not help many people. 60 houses burned to the ground because how could you respond in three feet of water? host: are you referring it the fires in brooklyn? >> yes, breezy point. it is too much to be responded to by too few resources and there is no power, there is no pumps. it is just crazy. you say how much trust can you have in government? whether can government do to the extent that you have places inundated. you get the point. if it dealt with in a serious way which neither party is doing, it is a joke. they are a small group of voices who argue to muddy the water when it is clearly in favor of something is going on and you need to
. we were calling it the katrina factor the other day. the bush administration, they're not terribly effective response to hurricane katrina shadowed the rest of the bush presidency. besides the huge humanitarian cost, which resulted, no president wants to be seen under responding to a storm. that, besides the fact that you want to safeguard the american public, would suggest there would be a big response from the obama administration. there is only so much to you in do. a storm like this in new york, that is something we have not seen for a long time. there is certainly the earth -- possibility for people to say, rightly or wrongly, that the federal government did not respond appropriately. i have not seen any signs that any major figure in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the response posed to the staff in benghazi, libya. we will have to wait to see w
to 2005 and katrina and some other hurricanes? >> it is too early to make that assessment even now. it is never satisfactory for those out of service. we are going to have vulnerabilities. when you have power, when you have and the structure, they are going to be vulnerable to natural disasters, of course. but i think all in all, in terms of the response, what i am hearing, what i am sensing is that people see that deployment was made to do so and a lot of circumstances -- a lot of systems worked as well as they could under the circumstances. i think you will see improvements in terms of the result of the end of the day. >> joining us is paul kirby, a senior editor with telecommunications report. >> one of the issues that is, this week is about the powers. a few years ago, the sec adopted rules the were challenged in the court. the real art -- fcc adopted rules the were challenged in the court. two judges were skeptical and so the fcc abandon them. >> this situation, while tragic, really highlights why we do some of the things we do. yes, a backup power systems devin ilie were stra

[laughter] the one that is true, was about the vote on hurricane katrina. there will be all kinds of wasted funds. there is no plan to spend it and most of the newspapers beat me up and i stood by it. it is a principled vote and it will be easy to vote on. king was right -- this is the sioux city's response. the balance of that is false. i have had better votes since then. voting against obamacare, voting against cap and trade, dodd- frank, those were better votes, but the rest of those allegations are false. >> he is one of 11 congressmen who took a vote against hurricane katrina relief. i think that everything i said in that ad is true. we have researched all of it. these are congressman king's own words. >> and he is using one to define mrs. vilsack. let's see what it says -- [video clip] >> what does it mean if mrs. vilsack calls for tax increases? she is for increasing taxes on job creators and in this stagnant economy, christie vilsack will effect -- it means she does not have a clue of jobs. >> mr. king, you've seen the ad. how do you respond? >> th

the florida coast. we got a lot of their grain from katrina. but all of the storms before, we were affected by many of those. we are 100 miles and the coast. you know what i am saying it? i think it is global warming. it could be other things and stuff. but the way the pollution and stuff is affecting the world -- there you can see different changes and stuff. that is what i want to say. host: this also from the wall street journal about transportation. riders took a 5 billion trips and public systems and washington, d.c., philadelphia, boston, jersey and the greater new york city area. scena. go ahead. caller: i am living in new york. and this is an economy issue. i am looking across the street and new jersey is deadlocked. i look downtown and it is blacked out. all of these people cannot go to work today. their businesses are closed. there are people scrambling. my friends are calling and asking where can i get food? this is a big issue. $20 billion is easily going to be the cost of this. it is all about the economy. we can get more than enough energy. and you wouldn't be facing climate c

overseas in afghanistan and that have served time with katrina down in new orleans, and they said it doesn't look much different. i would agree with them. even just walking around and having it be dead silent and the hising of natural gas coming out of the ground because of broken mains. we are still as of yesterday, still in search and rescue mode trying to make sure that everybody's out of their house and safe. before the -- they allow people to actually come back. it's a very, very frustrating time, but i can tell you kind of what -- you were talking about with ralph -- clive on the earlier call, the people -- i had the opportunity last night to go to some shelters and talk to some people. they are amazed at the amount of people that are willing to help and total strangers. from the time i was there just -- random citizens just walking into the shelters and donating goods and trying to help their fellow man. it's unfortunate it takes a tragic situation like this to bring the best out of people. host: congressman runyan, what is the best way that the federal government in your view can h
katrina hit and some of the people who were evacuated from new orleans were brought to massachusetts, we gathered them at a military base on cape cod. they thought there are going to houston, by the way. [laughter] and when the airplane said, no, we're going to boston, there were not very happy because it is colder and boston. so the king to give cod. we told our citizens that there were people coming from new orleans who were affected by the hurricane and they might need help. and you know what? there were cars lined up. people dropping of all sorts of goods of all kinds, some things that were temporary like food, but also of tv sets and) it was amazing to see the turn out. it is part of the american way. we have people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it. and your generosity will make a difference. i want to thank you. we have some work to do. but to make this an enjoyable were sitting, we have asked a great entertainer, randy owen of alabama, to be here. [applause] he is an extraordinary guy. he will probably tell
officiales to set aside partisan differences. when it's botched as it was in the wake of hurricane katrina. they both graps these principles as they toured the shore. -- >> >> follow today east "washington journal" in the video library at cspan.org. live coverage from doswell virginia on c-span. >> i see there are some really young people and others a little bit older but younger. this election is for you, to make sure you have the same opportunities to catch your dream that we had growing up. [applause] and unlike my opponent who wants to be president obama senator, i want to be virginia's senator. [applause] we are so very fortunate to have here in virginia a governor who is leading a come back in the common wealth of virginia. [applause] we need leaders -- what we did, bob you were in the legislature and so was eric at the time. the democrats controlled the general assembly but we cut taxes and made our streets safer, higher ack demics in our schools and over 3,000 jobs were created in those four years. mitt romney was governor of massachusetts also with a democratic legislature and wha
exactly because we do not know the total number. some think it will only be second to katrina. there will be tens of billions of dollars. we are doing a continual resolution until april 1. whether or not that will be enough remains to be seen. every time there's a disaster on the west coast, an earthquake, a flood and the mississippi, a tornado, we pull together as congress, republicans and democrats and do what has to be done. i do not expect new jersey will be treated any differently. i know my colleagues in surrounding states, especially in new york and new england states were very hard hit. i have been in contact with republicans and democrats. i think we are going to join together and do what is necessary. we do not know what those numbers are. i think it is premature to speculate too much. host: thank you for joining us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the in
toward paying claims for consumers, toward servicing the debt that resulted from hurricane katrina. the private insurance carriers only get an expense reimbursement. they essentially get a stipend from the federal program in order to run that program. they don't really take part. they don't earn premiums and those premiums don't go into their private coffers. they just get an expense reimbursement. so the concept that the right your own companies or that the insurance industry as whole is making a lot of money from the program, it's not accurate. my members are trusted choice agents. they are doing this, they are selling flood insurance billy as a benefit for consumers, in order to make sure consumers are protected from this dangerous peril. they're not making hand over fist money selling policies. it's just not accurate. host: john prible, because of these hurricanes that we looked at earlier in 2004 and sandy, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive
for showing up in such large numbers to help out. i remember in my state of massachusetts when katrina hit, some of the people were evacuated from new orleans were brought to massachusetts. we gathered them at a military base on cape cod. they thought they were going to houston, by the way. the plane said that they were going to boston and they were not very happy. we told our citizens that we have people coming here that have been affected by the hurricane if you would like to help by providing supplies and goods that they might need. you know what? there were cars lined up, people dropping off all sorts of goods, some things that were temporary like food. others that were permanent like tv sets, clothes, and it was amazing to see the turn out. it is part of the american way. we have people having hard times because of this terrible hurricane. your generosity will make a difference. i want to thank you. we have work to do. to make this an enjoyable work setting, we have asked a great entertainer, randy owen of alabama to be here.

katrina. this is a big risk for president obama. he had to show that he was a leader, minimize damage, look like he was an in get -- look like he was engaged, and by the way, there was an election in a week. he was on the phone with governors and mayors all up and down the eastern seaboard. chris christie, the governor of new jersey, his state was hardest hit. he had made some very favorable comments. over the last couple of months they made some really favorable comments. so, here is a moment in which a president can show great leadership, an opportunity to demonstrate the power of the white house or incumbency, or he can screw it up and bought everything, losing the election because of it. he is probably tilting towards the leadership right now. there have not been any serious critiques of the obama handling of the storm in the aftermath. what is mitt romney to do? he is in this middle place, where there is no role for an opposition candidate. no accepted script for what one of these candidates is supposed to do when one of these storms come along. there is a risk for both sides and
think it will be second only to katrina and there will be tens of billions of dollars involved in the recovery effort. we know we're working on a continuing resolution that will run until april 1st. whether that will be enough or not, it remains to be seen in. every time there is a disaster on the west coast, an earthquake, a flood, a tornado, we always pull together and do it has to be done. i did not expect new jersey will be treated any differently. i know my colleagues in surrounding states were very hard hit. i have been in contact with both democrats and republicans. we will join together and do what is necessary. we do not know the numbers are right now so it is no point to speculate. host:. you for joining us this morning. >> among the delegation that went with president obama on the tour of damage in new jersey. we're waiting to take you live for the latest update from fema their reporting the department of homeland security is temporarily waiving some maritime rules to allow foreign oil tankers from the gulf of mexico to enter northeast and ports. it jury -- janet of
. that is like talking about the levees in new orleans today without ever mentioning hurricane katrina. no one would do it. it is nonsensical. there is usually so little context provided about dodd frank did you would think it was the product of immaculate conception. there was no and to set -- antecedent of that. what was the date he started with? 2010. nothing happened before that. inexplicable. of course the dodd frank act was passed because of the two dozen 8-2009 financial crisis which was the worst financial crisis since 1929 and delivered the worst economy since the great depression. how come it is so rarely mentioned? because the financial industry, its lobbyists, allies, has been wildly successful in changing the subject and the debate from the financial crisis, wall street's role in in the cost to the country to the financial reform law regulations implementing it in the cost to them. the industry. it is truly remarkable how much time is spent talking about the self-serving claims of cost to the industry to put financial reform in place. to prevent that industry from crashing the fin
in this way. i remember in my state of massachusetts when katrina hit and some of the people evacuated were brought to massachusetts. we gathered them at a military base in cape cod, and they thought they were going to houston, and when the plane said, we are going to boston, they were not all have been because it does little colder in boston, but they came to cape cod, and they said, we have people in new orleans that have been affected by the hurricane. if we can help, bring them to cape cod. there were cars lined up, people dropping of goods of all kinds,
